A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!

Archive for the tag “honesty”



Yesterday I decided to watch the news and “WOW” for the next five hours the firing of the Director of the FBI was all that was on and FOX even had special reports. Today I just had an urge to check the Dow Jones average and even the financial stations were all about Comey’s firing. The last time all stations were still reporting the news instead of twisting it was on 9-11, a long time ago. The last time I saw Congress agree on anything was on December 7, 1941. Since then both the media and Congress have slowly become a comedy rather than functioning with honesty and/or common sense.

The highlight so far is the 37 times I have watched Charles Schumer have a theatrical melt down on the firing when he was screaming to get him fired before the election. The dumbest thing of the day was reading Podesta’s Tweet to fire him yesterday morning. Then his dramatic switch to feel the firing was a travesty and Trump was and idiot in so many words the same day. I bet he had lunch eating his morning Tweet words.

I have been biased in my writings ever since I decided to see if my experience and working all over the world might be interesting to some. I even coined the word “Demoncrats” to hopefully express my disdain for watching a political party switch from being Conservative to Idiotic Liberal in my lifetime. I was a Democrat, my father was a Democrat, my grandfather was an elected County Clerk as a Democrat. My dad had no time for politics but my grandfather would be spinning in his grave if he could see what happened to the Democratic Party since he died in 1949.

Watching the Republican Party win both the House, Senate and Presidency was a dream for me to see hope that the “Party of Common Sense” would stop the race to Socialize America. Was I ever wrong, yes indeed folks watching the “Repulsivecans”, my newest name to describe them, as they go hog-wild fighting among themselves. Watching anything happening in Congress today reminds me of “Larry, Curly and Moe” with slapstick comedy when I was a boy. Has been’s like Graham and McCain trying to act like conservatives make me sick.  

I listened to one of the GOP (Guess Our Position) state this morning that the Senate would have a position on the House approved healthcare changes in two months. Can you imagine the President, CEO or both announcing to shareholders of a major corporation that we tell you what we have planned to do to do regarding a critical issue in 60 days. They would be “Toast”. It is time folks to tell Congress “Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way.

Whining, crying, babbling, ignoring, lying and delaying the business of the people needs to end. They have created rules, objections, filibustering, emotional meltdowns and every possible reason to delay everything. When I was on the executive staff of a major corporation responsible for critical management decisions it required results everyday. If I had been asked by the President for action to address a major problem and told him I will give you an answer in 60 days I would have been fired on the spot.

Folks, like it or not it is time for Americans to give Congress 60 days to get their act together, act not react. Do what the people demanded or it is time for term limits. They will cry, moan, make 331,291 excuses, and by 60 days present us 2,334,991 reasons why the United States will perish without their 50 years of experience. If “The Sheriff” we elected will call for an election to let the people decide on term limits the “Country Club Lifestyle” will be over for 535 elected Congresspersons at last.

I recently wrote an article about Congress being broken. Well I was just being kind. Humpty Dumpty has been patched too many times and we need some real public servants to represent freedom loving Americans again. Now that FOX News is imploding there will not be any TV station left for conservatives to stay informed. “Trump, please save America”   C Brewer  


I published the following article one year ago and decided to re-publish it so you can evaluate my perceptions. I feel that what has actually happened more than proved my thesis that politics and the national media will say or do anything to distort facts for pure political reasons. If read my articles the emergence of Donald Trump has added another refreshing factor and if nothing else he has built a following that crosses all political lines.

Many Americans, myself included, are sick and tired of politics, Congress, the President, the Supreme Court, illegal aliens, 24/7 news which is 98% politics and the suicide mission of the Republican Party. This could well be my last Presidential election as I will be 86 before event is concluded. One thing is perfectly clear, Washington DC is totally unprepared for Donald Trump. If he is elected President there is a great chance that the Progressive movement to change America into a Socialists Democracy or Monarchy like we have watched Europe become will be stopped. Should Trump nominate Cruz for the Supreme Court he will be a refreshing lightning rod to wake them up like he has done in the Senate. At least he will force the other eight to explain why they ignore or try to change the Constitution with 5-4 decisions. If politics is eliminated in their decisions every vote should be 9-0.

I hope you enjoy another chance to read or re-read the following article that was published 4-9-15 and support the election of Donald Trump as the next President of the United States. As my future is limited it would be refreshing to watch the entrenched politicians, bureaucrats, illegal aliens and companies that have deserted America for foreign shores run for cover. If Trump would pledge to demand “Term Limits” for congress it would be the best thing to happen in my lifetime. God Save America.

Feedback appreciated and enjoy the re-posted article.


I have written several passages about negative politics and it appears that civility in the American political arena will never again appear. An honest and ethical person like Mitt Romney was the last gentleman to prove my thesis. Politics has now become a blood sport, not to physically harm another American, but just destroy his abilities with lies, distortions, assumptions and character assignations.

Recent revelations proving this to now be the political standard procedure were openly admitted by Harry Reid with a smile of satisfaction, when ask if he lied about Romney’s income tax evasion. Looking back to our founding fathers an event like this would have been settled with a duel. Today in America lying has become an acceptable practice with no penalty as exhibited hundreds of times by President Obama. Democrats are unafraid of breaking the law under Obama unless you refuse to support him right or wrong. Senator Robert Menendez just found out that even if you are a Democrat, you had better not piss off Obama or Eric Holder.

When you watch nine Supreme Court Justices, hide behind closed doors and not be able read the simple clear US Constitution in unison you know America is in trouble. Every decision this Court makes is unanimously concluded using political agendas to render decisions.  

I am wise enough to understand that dirty politics has now become the benchmark of all elections at every level, local, State and National levels when two political parties control most of the voters. I watched Lyndon Johnson steal his US Senate seat by having ballot boxes stuffed in far South Texas. Volumes could be filled with similar events if we had honest news reporting that disappeared after World War II.

The thing that really intrigues me is the way the Republican Party has used these same underhanded methods to destroy each other. I admit watching a green, unqualified neophyte named Obama, make Hillary Clinton appear as the “Wicked Witch of the South” with nothing but oratorical cleverness. They both took some cheap shots but when the smoke cleared they embraced, then unveiled how dumb people would be if they voted for McCain. Well McCain did exhibit his façade of posing as a conservative Republican during an election where people skipped voting for a qualified leader as no one was actually on either ballot. My point being that Democrats, as evil as they can be, know that slaughtering each other will not win elections, even for dog catchers.

Today I was reading the only daily newspaper, well it used to be a newspaper, unveiling headlines on the front page a picture of Rand Paul and the words. “Paul’s first challenge: Defeat Cruz”. This newspaper is so liberal it would make the New York Times be lauded for “Conservative Belief’s”. The article was actually written by David Knowles of Bloomberg News.

Let me share some actual quotes; “only one of these men will likely have a realistic shot at challenging established candidates like Jeb Bush”, “In other words, more political attacks between the two second-tier candidates are sure to follow”. The message is to let them destroy each other as neither will be a factor next year. Sadly the gun battle is underway to destroy each other.

Another story in today’s slant-sheet is titled “Paul slams both parties as he launches campaign”. Now this story on page 5 was from the New York (Progressive) Times. A Quote to describe the content is, “Paul launched his 2016 presidential campaign Tuesday with a combative message against both Washington and his fellow Republicans, declaring that ‘we have come to take our country back’.”

The progressives know how to paint conservatives as the “War” party with distortions, cunning, bias and creative word usages. The script can be written now on how the Republicans destroyed each other again. The GOP has perfected the practice of slaying each other time and time again. They fail to just present their views, allow the opponent to present their views and let the voters decide who to support. They have to argue about issues like abortion, not with Democrats, they just like to slay each other and lose.

Leaders have enough common sense to shut up, extol their abilities, and demonstrate their strengths. They are prepared to stand up and defend any attack and let the media and their opponents make fools of themselves. If they have no leadership qualities “sane” Americans are smart enough to see through facades, egoist lies, distortions and oratorical abilities to read from teleprompters.

Well there have been two exceptions in 2008 and 2012. How did the biggest con artist, Marxist and glib tongued imposter as a leader get elected, not once but twice? He mesmerized enough women and young brain washed Americans to combine forces with the poor, career welfare recipients, minority blacks, dead people and illegal aliens to help him destroy our Republic form of government.

How he used puppets like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin and other brainless Democrats to change America into a Socialists Democracy will have historians busy for the next fifty years. In fact it will take fifty years to undo the damage if the Republicans can ever sing from just one sheet of music again. Our nation is leaderless and aimlessly on a path of a self-destructive civil war if we can’t produce someone to unite us again. In my opinion we have no one running yet for President in either party that can unite Americans. Currently Ted Cruz is the only candidate who shows any courage and leadership ability but watch as the other Republicans skewer him from within. The Grand Old Party (GOP) died long before its last leader, Ronald Reagan.

Republicans can’t even agree on having a funeral service while the Democrats just watch and enjoy the same self-inflicted suicide primary every four years.

I have been having some health issues over the past two months that have enslaved me. I am unsure if this has not been worse on my wife, Norma, as my patience has never been one of my better assets. In fact when this article is posted on Facebook after it is published on WordPress I will get more feedback agreeing that I am impatient from all of my children, their children, grandchildren and a few hundred friends. I would describe my mood after being prisoner for six weeks as a “Wormy Grump”.”

What made this misery worse was watching the Republican candidates slaughter each other 24/7 and realizing that Hillary Clinton may be the first President of the United States imprisoned for treason and letting American be slaughtered and desecrated by dragging their bodies down the streets in Benghazi, Libya. Eventually the military will get enough of the lawless actions on the Executive, Judicial and Congressional branches of our government and do something. Even third world countries stop mass lawlessness at some point.

This weeks  four to four vote by the Supreme Court upholding that Unions can force people to pay dues for actions they deplore is a perfect example of “Government Gone Mad” and this was cheered by our President and the entire Demoncratic leadership. Before they are through they will force all older seniors to dig their own graves in a Federal cemetery and force us to leave all of our property and savings to the US Treasury.

Laugh now if you believe I am crazy but unless someone stops Obama, Scotus and Congress lawless Government power surges, all States Rights will soon be ruled invalid and all policing actions will be by a new Federal Law Enforcement Bureau. I feel certain that our Presidents recent primary mission for visiting Cuba was to see how to federalize everything by Executive Order before he leaves to become King of Hawaii and eventually succeed as a State from the USA.

What prompted me to write this article was watching the news today I saw both Obama and Traitor John Kerry both quote the exact words in the title to describe what they said was the question they were asked by every world leader they converse with. The real scary event consequence is that when two of the most powerful people in the world today do not know how to answer the question, “What is happening in America”? Anyone who is not blind, deaf, mute, a Demoncrat and/or a RINO can recognize chaos, even the tree-huggers and professional protesters would agree.

Folks, America is leaderless in every segment of our government today. The Executive Branch has elevated its self to be a Royal Family. The Supreme Court would vote a four to four tie if they were asked if Treason was a crime. Congress would disagree if the question was, “what day comes after Sunday”? Laymen would all answer “Monday” but the ones who have spent their life in Congress and every lawyer, regardless of political brainwashing, would say in unison, “What day do you want it to be”?

One thing is certain I am sick of politics, Washington insanity, dishonesty, lies, lawlessness, destruction of our freedoms, racial hatred, bias, political correctness, Demoncrats, Congress, Obama, Czars, the media including Fox News, Hillary, Bernie and the total meltdown of the Republican party. The announcements this morning by the three Republicans that they would not even support each other is proof the GOP died and America now has a one political Demoncratic party. God bless America and protect our freedoms as man has gone totally mad. 

Norma has informed me it is time to get out of the house and go fishing or play golf, please. She is always right and has been for nearly 56 years.

What would you like to add to my facts? C Brewer (Fore)



My good friend Allan Moore shared this with me and if you believe that our government is honest and ethical you are a raving idiot. This has never happened before Obama who is evil, dishonest and a disgrace. If you vote for any democrat that supports his policy you are equally as bad. The worst part is that the media, including Fox and Congresspersons running for re-election hide it from the people, senior citizens, who live on fixed incomes. C Brewer

Did you receive your Medicare Handbook for 2015 yesterday? If you have already received yours in the mail please turn to page 12 and go down to the bottom of the page and read “Find out what you pay for Medicare (Part A and Part B). It states that the premium and deductible amounts were not available at the time of printing. It further states you may call 1-800-633-4227 to get the most up-to-date info.

I did just that and talked with a Medicare representative. She told me that they probably would not have those figures in until the end of the first week or possibly the second week of November. Now, let that sink in …

As soon as she stated that to me I replied, “My, isn’t that convenient for the Obama Administration to actually hold off on those figures until after the 2014 election results.” There was dead silence on the other end of the line. I told her thank you and I would call back.

I may be wrong, but as I see it, I really think I am right!

You see on our Social Security increase for next year we are only receiving an increase of around 1%-1.7%. Even the military are getting just over 1%-1.7%. You can bet after the November 4th election the increases for Medicare A & B will be greater than any 1%-1.7%. That is why they are delaying what the increases will be. Because if they had put it in that handbook, any elderly would be voting against the Democrats.

So anyone voting for the Democrats in the forthcoming elections deserves to get the increases that are coming after November 4th.

Thanks Allan, I hope the internet can make this available before the election. Rumor is that the premiums and the deductible will be increased 100% in 2015. That will costs each average senior nearly $2,000.00 more next year. That is going to hurt millions of Americans who barely get by today. The government tells seniors the increase next year in Social Security will average about $20 a month or $240 a year. Senior citizens have no place in Obama and the Democrats new society, just die and go away. CB


This is the guy who should be running for President in 2016!

A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give.

By Dennis Prager.

To the students and faculty of our high school:

I am your new principal, and honored to be so.

There is no greater calling than to teach young people.

I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.

First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity.

I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity — your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American.

This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its three central values – E pluribus Unum, “from many, one.” And this school will be guided by America’s values. This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.

Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism — an unhealthy preoccupation with the self — while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.

Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America’s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here — it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English — if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.

Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.

Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s property — whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can’t speak without using the f -word, you can’t speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.

Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way — the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago — by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be ONE valedictorian, not eight.

Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue… There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately fortunate — to be alive and to be an American.

Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.

My good friend Bob McGraw shared this with me. I hope you will share this with every American you know. This was how I was raised and joining the US Navy at 17 prepared me to be a man. It is a shame that our President and Congress do not have a clue about leadership, ethics, truth, honesty or freedoms anymore. If anything is not politically important it deserves no attention in our government.

I have developed a checklist for anyone to use for evaluating a candidate you would recommend as a Role Model for our children to admire. The only fatherless children I ever knew as a boy were ones who lost their father in World War 2. Fathers and mothers are supposed to be Role Models for their children. Until the Pearl Harbor attack, mothers raised their children instead of grandparents, day care centers or sadly no one. Times have changed and now as few mothers truely raise their children and look at some of the statistics related to children who spend their entire life with no father.

•63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.

•90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.

•85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average.  (Center for Disease Control)

•80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average.  (Justice & Behavior, Vol. 14, p. 403-26)

•71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average.  (National Principals Association Report)

•75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes – 10 times the average.

•70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average.  (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988)

•85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average.  (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction)

• 43% of all US children live without their father [US Department of Census]

Daughters of single parents without a Father involved are 53% more likely to marry as teenagers, 711% more likely to have children as teenagers, 164% more likely to have a pre-marital birth and 92% more likely to get divorced themselves.

If this shocks you as it did me, I encourage you to read more and really get shocked. When will the American people wake up and get involved? Now Obama and Congress are racing to add 13 million more aliens to these statistics for only one reason. Power, re-election and electing Hillary Clinton for 8 more years of destruction is the only reason.

Before you get to the checklist I would like to ask you to use the same criteria to evaluate your current member of the House of Representatives, both Senators and who you voted for in the last Presidential election. You could use this for State and local elected positions. If you do evaluate those you voted for, would you vote for them again? Yes or No. If you answered “No” have you determined why you chose them or do you really care who are “Role Models” for your children? 


Candidate’s name_______________________________________________


1. As a Leader, would you follow (him/her) anywhere, anytime and support their every position?   Yes — No or Who Cares

2. Do you truly believe (he/she) is ethical, honest and trustworthy?     Yes –No or Who Cares

Yes or Who Cares means you would or possibly have recommend (him/her) to be a Role Model for your children, grandchildren or great grandchildren? The “Who Cares” must be the people who voted for Obama and the Democrats as I can’t think of even one who meets the criteria of question 2. For that matter I have the same problem when I review the Republicans I voted for. Folks we are leaderless and short on Role Models for our children to admire.

If you feel you need some more detail coaching to answer the above two questions, I have compiled some detailed questions you can use to help you decide.


1. Do you feel they might be depriving a village somewhere of its idiot?

2. Like a small puppy – do they run around excitedly, leaving little messes for other people to clean up?

3. As leaders have they passed being a has-been and they are actually a never will be?

4. When they open their mouth, it is only to change the foot that was previously in there?

5. Could they function as a leader or organizer in a 2 man submarine?

6. Do they carry out each and every one of their duties only to their satisfaction?

7. Would they be out of their depth in a parking lot water puddle?

8. Are they technically sound, but socially impossible?

9. Do they have occasional flashes of adequacy that are marred by an attitude of apathy and indifference?

10. Do they remind you of a gyroscope, always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere?

11. When they reach rock bottom do they keep digging?

12. Could they organize a woodpecker picnic in a National Forest?

13. Do they work well when under constant supervision or when cornered like a rat in a trap?

14. Are they the sharpest knife in the drawer?

15. Do they have two brains; one being lost and the other out looking for it?

16. Did they get into the gene pool while the lifeguard wasn’t watching?

17. Do they have a room temperature IQ score?

18. Do they drink from the Fountain of Knowledge or just gargle?

19. Are they brain dead and just don’t know it?

20. Are they so busy they don’t know whether they found a rope or lost their horse?

My friend Ron J just shared this message that I feel is being ignored by the national media, Congress and not only smells rotten, it is sad. Dishonesty emitting from the Obama White House without even caring is too much for me. What happened to “Honesty” in America?  I have taken the liberty to make some minor changes in the message Ron sent me to improve understanding how rotten our government has become. C Brewer

This should become another scandal in the Obama Administration; a series of technical and procedural problems or “glitches” have spoiled the debut of ObamaCare. The cost, to the taxpayer, of the contract to introduce this new law into a user-friendly, hacker resistant, safe, secure and efficient computer application, accessible to the general public via an on-line web site, is approaching one (1) billion dollars. 

So far, the details behind the problem plagued “roll-out” have not been revealed or the core causes identified. However, the following information may shed some light onto the reasons for the problems.

When the subject of the PPACA (ObamaCare) comes up, and people start asking questions as to how the program could be so inadequate for the task, you’ll be able to contribute some useful information to the group so that they may form an opinion.

If you doubt this summarization feel free to click on the following article;


Next, remember this individual, Toni Townes-Whitley – Senior Vice President at CGI Federal.

Now absorb the fact that the Obama government officials considered only one firm to design the Obamacare health insurance exchange web site. Unless you are a democrat, blind and deaf you are aware that this website has been a total disaster since its Oct. 1 debut.

No “sole source” contracts should ever be awarded unless emergency circumstances with no viable alternatives exist. Especially, not to foreign owned companies.)  

The Administration did not open the contracting process to a competitive public solicitation with a multiple of bidders. Officials in the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, accepted a sole bidder, CGI Federal, the U.S. subsidiary of a Canadian company with an uneven record of IT pricing and contract performance.

CMS officials are tight-lipped about why CGI was chosen or how it happened. They also refuse to say if other firms competed with CGI, or if there was ever a public solicitation for building Healthcare.gov, the backbone of Obamacare’s problem-plagued web portal.

Now comes the facts that will blow your skirt up. Recently, some allegations have come to light. Here are a few of them: 

Toni Townes-Whitley, Senior Vice President at CGI Federal for Civilian Agency programs, is a University of Princeton graduate, Class of 1985. 

Michelle Obama is also a Princeton grad, Class of 1985.

Both are members of Association of Black Princeton Alumni.

CGI “donated” $47 Million to President Obama’s campaign. 

CGI executives were large campaign bundlers for President Obama.

CGI helped the Obama campaign to bypass the security features on the campaign donation web site in 2008 and 2012, in order to accept multi-millions of dollars in foreign donations.

Does this stink like a classic display of “crony capitalism”? 

Why are the Main Stream Media not asking questions?

Sad, very sad!! 



I was raised and educated to accept and believe that the leaders of the United States of America met every one of the definitions I have listed below. Read these definitions as carefully as I have and try to answers some specific questions that follow.


The adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.


The quality or fact of being honest, upright, fair, truthful, sincere, or frank with freedom from deceit or fraud.


Ethical principles it takes to do what is right when it may cost more than you are willing to pay. Who you are and what you do when no one is looking.


Fundamental principles of right conduct rather than legalities.


Important beliefs. Not all are ethical, some are neutral or non-ethical.


The action taken to carry out the values, ethics and morals that you believe in. Consistency between what you say you will do and what you actually do. Putting the ethics into action, defines, builds, or breaks your reputation.

Generals and Admirals were always the perfect example of leaders. Respect was earned with performance. Recent actions by some of these military leaders has been embarrassing. Do you feel they have been honest, moral, ethical and earned respect for their character?

Our President stands before us daily and lies, distorts with his own words, positions he both approves and disapproves depending on when he was recorded. Do you believe his actions are honest and ethical? I do not.

We have Congress Persons who answer the same questions with opposing views depending on political gain and re-election on the same day. Do you feel that we have even one Congress Person who is honest or has any moral character? I do not. 

Recent actions by government agencies like the State Department, Internal Revenue Service, Justice Department and the Intelligence groups is unlawful and shameful. These people would not know what the truth is and flaunt their power with deceit and lies. Do you respect them? I don’t’.

Our Supreme Court has become a court of political beliefs rather than resolving the destruction of our Constitution and Bill of Rights by minority zealots who are destroying our freedoms at warp speed. Do you feel they follow the law or their political beliefs?

I truly believe something has happened to our leaders and they have developed a new set of rules that I don’t like them. Do you?

“Character is not reflected by what we say, or even by what we intend, it is a reflection of what we do.” – Anonymous

Do me a favor and sit down and make a list of current living American leaders that you feel meet all of these requirements 100% of the time. I have tried hard to find anyone in government that qualify’s.

I do expect to get comments that no one in America can meet all of these requirements and I agree that none do before you waste your and my time trying. The sad part is that they all swore on the bible that they are moral, honest, ethical and have the values and character that meet these 100% of these requirements. We know they are lying but we just keep electing them anyway for some goofy reason. Americas values disappeared when the lawyers took over the leadership a long time ago and we just ignore the moral decay and normal. WHY?

 Honesty and integrity were important in politics and the news media when I was younger. Now we get nothing but spin and ego trips from Washington. Finally someone with integrity and honesty was likely,  by accident, scheduled to speak and blew the socks off of the audience. I have watched this several times and decided to try to share it with as many Americans as possible.  C Brewer

In the moments after this speech went public, it was blasted by many commentators and lauded by an equal amount who loved it.  In the days following, the YouTube video went viral and has had millions of hits. 

When you can spend 30 minutes of uninterrupted listening time, I recommend it to you.  Just one disclaimer; he is “a political”, does not ascribe to either political party, thus his invitation to the non-partisan breakfast gathering. 

The main speaker, Dr. Benjamin Carson, at the National Prayer breakfast is a distinguished Physician.

He is the Director of the Pediatric Neuro-Surgery Division at Johns-Hopkins-University. 

He grew up in abject poverty, one of ten children to an illiterate woman, who was married at 13, and mother of 9 other children, in the environs of Baltimore, MD.  He worked his ass off for many, many years and finally made it.  He is at the pinnacle of a profession, where competition is unusually fierce.  He’s not a YoYo, Oreo or Ding Dong, he’s a very smart and savvy guy. 

To Recap: 

He lamented the dumbing down of our nations schools and recalled the cautioning of many great statesmen who warned that the illiterate will drag down our nations ability to compete in the world, succeed in international commerce and scientific advancement. 

He made the comparison of ancient Rome to the USA of today, noting that both are subject to self-destruction through moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility. 

He stressed the:

Need to recognize stellar academic’s, as well as a star QB, point guard or pitcher! 

Need to recognize the Judeo-Christian ethic, as a cornerstone for our founders, in Law and Education.

Need to recognize commercial achievement of entrepreneurs and stop trying to punish hard-earned success!

He opined that our 16+ Trillion dollar National debt was one of, if not, the biggest of problems facing America today and for our children and grandchildren. 

That taxation was not meant to be a means of punishing success, and,

Health Savings Accounts (HSA) were essential, for the future well being of all American’s. 

So where was he wrong or disrespectful or out of line?

What did he say that was inappropriate or “politically incorrect”?

At the conclusion, Michelle Obama rose and enthusiastically applauded. I would have as well. 

This runs almost 30 minutes, but, it is quite something…..  Saying it like it really is………


Thank you Ron for sharing this with me. CB

How can the United States be so divided when everyone is working from the same numbers? It’s a fair question, especially since most of today’s raucous national debate is about budgets and deficits – not about war, or corruption, for instance, which would not be so easily quantifiable.  Of course, not everyone interprets numbers in the same way; “How to Lie with Statistics” is not just a book title.

The U.S. will never solve its debt and deficit problems unless we face reality.  Some of the most popular (and most questionable) talking points used by Democrats will have to go – as will countervailing arguments from Republicans. Here’s a reasoned take on a few of the most frequently garbled arguments making headlines these days.

Myth: The Left proclaims that President Obama “inherited” the deficit crisis, and that it stemmed from the Bush tax cuts, two wars and the passage of the Medicare drug program. George W. Bush did indeed stomp out the budget surplus he inherited from President Clinton. However, it was mainly the economic downturn in 2008 that led to our escalating deficits.

Reality: During most of Bush’s tenure, our deficits were under 3.5 percent of GDP — a level well within the country’s means and not so far off the historical average since 1960 of 2.3 percent.  The trend worsened as President Obama took office. Fiscal 2009 (for which Bush reasonably takes the blame) recorded a deficit of $1.4 trillion, or 10 percent of GDP, as outlays spiked to ward off the recession and receipts tumbled. However, Republicans note that it is the ongoing increase in spending since then, and projected in the years ahead, that has resulted in our recent debt downgrade.

In the FY 2011 budget, spending is projected to rise every year of the next ten.   Americans might have pictured the giant $800 billion stimulus program as a “pig in a python” that would cause spending to balloon and then recede; unfortunately, we will see no such thing.  President Obama has allowed considerable growth in the federal full time and contractor workforce to an all-time high, and expanded numerous programs.

Longer term, entitlement outlays threaten our outlook. Standard & Poor’s noted last fall that unless the government initiates reforms, Social Security and Medicare will literally eat us alive. By 2035, age-related pensions, Social Security, Medicare and other payments will account for 16.3 percent of GDP, up from 10.8 percent in 2010. If no actions are taken, debt will climb to 229 percent of GDP by 2035, and our debt will have been downgraded to “speculative grade.” A sobering outlook, to be sure.

Myth: Another favorite liberal narrative is that corporations don’t pay taxes. This notion emerges from a couple of studies that have been widely misconstrued. Specifically, one 2008 GAO study reported that 55 percent of U.S. companies paid no federal income tax “during at least one year in a seven-year period it studied.” That factoid has quickly morphed into “more than half of all corporations pay no taxes.”

Reality: Another more revealing study indicates that corporate taxes have been declining as a percent of GDP, even as corporate profits have actually risen. This is a worrisome trend. Taxes collected from corporations accounted for less than 11 percent of federal revenues in the last decade, down from nearly 30 percent in the 1950s. The majority of lost corporate revenues stems from myriad tax breaks offered by the government.  Many of these allowances are out of date and should be reconsidered as part of comprehensive tax reform. Large tax breaks for prosperous corporate farms, ethanol producers and oil producers may not make sense.

Myth: One of the most controversial talking points has to do with our progressive tax code. When President Obama talks about the wealthy in the country “paying their fair share,”  he has never said what “fair” looks like, but resorts instead to the suggestion that the wealthy should pay “a little more.”

Reality: Forty-seven percent of all Americans pay no federal income taxes. In 2008 the top 10 percent of earners accounted for 70 percent of all federal income tax revenue, which would appear fairly progressive.

Myth: Many on the left have argued that we should not cut government spending, suggesting that every dollar goes to programs essential to the survival of the United States. A recent New York Times editorial that said meeting the demand for an additional $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years will require “crippling basic functions.”

Reality:  Does anyone really believe that our $4 trillion annual budget does not include $100 billion of projects and programs that can be eliminated? It is an absurd notion, contradicted by no less an authority than the Office of Management and Budget. In a 345-page report published in March, analysts identified duplicative programs that Senator Tom Coburn estimates could save $100 billion annually. Included in the list were 56 programs dedicated to financial literacy and 47 offering job training. An effort to reduce these wasteful undertakings would cheer Americans greatly.

We are in trouble, and it is time for both the left and right to discard the tired poll-tested canards that now pass as “truth” and face facts. We have work to do.
